Principal’s welcome


Hello and welcome to Mossman State High School’s website.

Our school is a vibrant and exciting place where students are continually learning and developing the knowledge and skills that allow them to contribute in a positive way to our community and society as a whole.

We are very proud of our extensive academic curriculum that provides students with many opportunities to achieve success and to excel.  We also provide a wide range of vocational education and training opportunities that allow students to gain qualifications to enter the workforce.

In addition our school has an outstanding range of extra curricula activities that keep students motivated and challenged.

We have a strong tradition of excellence in teaching and caring for our students.  Our school community and the wider community has a strong sense of pride in our school and our students.  We have high expectations for our students and reinforce traditional values based on respect for self and other. 

It is gratifying to me as a principal to see many students successfully graduating from our school and progressing on to work or further study.  Our students have excelled academically with excellent university entry rates.  Many students also excel in school based apprenticeships and traineeship and certificate level courses in preparation for the workforce.

Our students have the opportunity to participate in public speaking events, debating, mooting, sporting events, cultural activities, visual art and photography exhibitions, performing arts, business ventures and not-for-profit community activities.  These activities and events allow our students the opportunity to extend their skills and knowledge beyond the classroom. 

Our school has a strong sense of community and this is demonstrated in the care that is shown for all students.  Our student population includes international students with English as a second language and students with disabilities.  Our diversity allows all students to develop acceptance and respect for everyone.

We have amazing staff members who are committed to encouraging our students to strive to achieve their best and to continue to discover new talents.  Many of our staff members send their own children to our school and want to create and maintain the best possible learning environment for all students.

Mossman State High School offers a nurturing and disciplined learning environment for all students.  We have high expectations of our students and work together with parents and the wider community to ensure that our students are given every opportunity to achieve their best and to recognise their worth and the significant contribution they can make to their community and society.
